DEWALT DW089K Self-Leveling 3-Beam Line Laser Review
The new Dewalt DW089K is an improved version of the previous Dewalt DW089K. One of the differences from its predecessor is the new micro-knob for an easier adjustment of the beams. This means that with DW089K, there is no need to keep resetting when moving to a new location. By using the new micro-adjustment knob, users can easily realign the lasers to check for levelling and perfect angles. However, what it makes an evolved and more accurate version of the previous is the new 3-beam lines laser, providing not only a vertical and horizontal line but also a side line, taking precision to another level. This is definitely a benefit to save money as you won’t need to set up more than one equipment to find the right measurements.
Check out this short video to see why DW089k is one of the top laser levels available today.
